Mission accomplished!

Yeah, as you can read in the title, my mission is accomplished. I had to repair the fallen stitches in my knitting and I managed to do so. It turned out to be a wonderful shawl!
And finally, finally spring arrived in The Netherlands. And like a cow that comes out of the barn for the first time and 'dances'  in the meadow I went outside, to clean around the house. I washed the windows, swept with my broom the fallen leaves (from last autumn) on a pile and threw them in the carbage can. 
And after cleaning up DH and I went to the garden centre to buy some plants to put in containers.

  In the evening I stitched on Promise Me. It is almost finished!
And my second sock is done, so now I have a pair, like I should have. 
 I already casted on a new pair of socks, I think this might become an addiction ...

What beautiful socks Joke. I love the colors in the yarn and the way they all come together to form the stripes and all. What kind of yarn did you use? I haven't attempted socks yet but would love to.
Isn't is a great feeling to be able to put out those flowers every spring? I always look forward to this time of year and working in the garden.
Love your stitching.

I never mentioned your beautiful shawl! I just made a shawl as well but now that I see yours, I would love to make another using those colors. Where did you find the pattern for it? Beautiful.
